11/25/19 Comet Update

Nov 25 at 3:59 PM

Hello Comet Parents!

I’m sure by now that most of you have heard….our RB Rockets have made it to the big dance “The IHSA 4A State Football Final”

Since 1992 we’ve only participated in this game two other times! So this is a pretty proud moment and certainly a great feat for this team despite any outcome.

They have already made Rocket history, but it can even get better. Come out and support their FINAL game and the BIG ONE in 2019!

If your day after Thanksgiving (Friday) isn’t free because of work, no worries as the kickoff is at 7 PM so you have plenty of time to make it from the SG/Richmond area! It’s only about an hour and 15 min drive.
